Sux and more from my Mom's garden!

Sometimes you don't realize what you have right under your nose! I pulled up to my Moms house this morning, and I have been noticing her kalenchoe in bloom for a few months now, but I had my camera and decided to take a few pics. I was surprised at all the succulents she had in her garden! A huge aloe, the kalenchoe, and a portulaca! The other plants were so colorful, I had to take a few pics of them as well. She has a hibiscus, cordyline fruticosa (Ti plants), Cordyline australis (?)and many other things in there too! It is very beautiful this time of year with the kalenchoe in adds a punch of color along the front! My brother, sister-in-law, and I planted this garden for her about 6 years ago, and it has really filled in, and had more plants added over the years. I think it looks like it belongs in Better Homes and Gardens!

What a lovely garden. Very colorful. What kind of plant is that in the last picture? I love the coloring.

That is a Ti plant (cordyline fruticosa)...I love these plants, because you can break off a stem of it, and stick it right into the ground and it will root. They are awesome...I've got some going in my backyard as well.

Apparently great gardening runs in your family.
